This week The PMO Podcast™ Featured Story presents, “International Project Manager Travel Survival Tips”, presented by Mark Perry (about Mark), host of The PMO Podcast™. So you are considering a career in International Project Management or perhaps you have been offered a unique and exciting international project to head for your company. International Project Management sounds exciting and it can be. But it also can be an experience that can defeat even the best of project managers and business professionals and this defeat has very little to do with project management or business skills. Mastering international travel will go a long way to helping you not just survive, but thrive, in your internal project management activities.

The PMO Podcast™ Points Memo presents, “The Power of Acknowledgement." Recently, I read a great book called, “The Power of Acknowledgement”, by Judy Umlas, of the International Institute for Learning. In this book, Judy calls to attention how valuable it can be to acknowledge others. Everyone likes to be thanked for their efforts, especially when they go beyond the call of duty. And, it makes the acknowledger feel good too. But far more important than the feel goods is the fact that Acknowledgement is just good business.

The PMO Podcast™ Mailbag answers a listener question about whether or not you need a project manager if you already have a technical lead on a project.
